Newly Rooted, cant enter Clockwork Recovery.
I just rooted my thunderbolt using the mac procedure on this site. Everything went well from what I can tell. I got superuser working and tested root privileges by using the Shoot Me app.
I want to backup my current rom so I downloaded Rom Manager and flashed the Clockwork Recovery. But when I try to enter recovery, im taken into fastboot where it tries to load up the PG05IMG.zip file (that I have removed from the sd card after rooting) then it takes me back to the Bootloader where I try to enter recovery from but then it repeats the loop.
What have I done wrong?

Just to make sure i know what you are doing. In clockwork mod you are clicking reboot into recovery? Is this the first time you are using recovery? If so did you click on flash clockwork mod recovery right above reboot into recovery. You need to do this the first time you use Rom manager.

You need to delete the pg05img.zip file from your sd card or you won't be able to get to recovery.
As long as you flashed recovery already in rom manager, you can delete that pg05 file and you should be able to get to recovery and make your backup following the steps you attempted earlier.

I've heard this before and have no idea where it got started but it does not affect CWR. I never deleted it from my sd card and boot into recovery all of the time.
You may try booting into recovery using adb
./adb reboot recovery
